Definition from Nolo’s Plain-English Law Dictionary
A document that provides proof of a marriage, typically issued to the newlyweds a few weeks after they file for the certificate in a county office. Most states require both spouses, the person who officiated the marriage, and one or two witnesses to sign the marriage certificate; often this is done just after the ceremony.
